How much will they help getting under downed tangled long stem grass hay ?
Priced lifters for a 617 mower at approx 250.00 .
Any draw backs to using them. If this should be moved to Thanks rj

I have them on my NH 7230--they help---IF the grass hay is dry (no dew).

I took mine off. The rotational mass vs. the "better lift" ain't worth it to me. If I hit something bad (I updated to the shear hubs) the extra mass adds to the problem of having some gears go bad, even though I have the shear hubs. I haven't noticed any different with cutting, but I also upgraded to (I think) 9 degree lift knives, so this surely must offset the difference. Mine's a 1431 discbine.
